Are you interested in creating landscapes that benefit of both the community
and Arizona’s native wildlife? Audubon Arizona has teamed up with the City of
Phoenix to make the city more accessible to birds, pollinators, and other wildlife!
Join us to install and maintain a new wildlife-friendly garden at the Nina Mason
Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center or just visit the new garden for ideas you
can use at home. See az.audubon.org for workday dates and times.

You can help by planting a variety of native trees, shrubs, and flowering plants in
your backyard, patio, workplace, schoolyard, or other open spaces to transform
these areas into valuable habitat for Arizona’s wildlife. Join us in our effort
by putting plants in the ground, encouraging others to landscape for native
wildlife, and by using this group to share resources, photos and success stories.
Together we can give back to Arizona’s wildlife while making our city a more
beautiful place for all!
